A sample size of n = 20 is a simple random sample selected from a normally distributed population. Find the critical value ta/2 corresponding to a 95% confidence level. I know the answer is 2.093, but I'm not sure how to get there. Can anyone show me?

The above picture shows you what you need to look up. The degrees of freedom is one less than the sample size. Significance level is 1-confidence level=1-0.95=0.05. t(ɑ/2) signifies 2-tail because half the significance level is in the left tail of the normal distribution and half in the right tail.
